Your beautiful and functional shower enclosure should provide years of enjoyment, as well as increase the value of your home. With the proper care and maintenance, your new enclosure will prove to be virtually worry-free.
The high quality hardware that you have chosen will require a minimal of attention.
The best way to maintain the beautiful finish on the hardware is to wipe it down after every use. After you shower, use a dry towel to thoroughly dry the hardware.
If the hardware is kept clean after every use, it will not collect mineral deposits that require the use of soap solution. If you are unable to dry the hardware after every use, a weekly cleaning is suggested. The correct method to be used in cleaning the hardware is a mild soap and warm water mixture. Mix a couple of drips of mild liquid soap, such as Ivory or similar products, into a cup of warm water. Using a soft, non-abrasive cloth, proceed to clean the hardware. After you’ve cleaned the hardware, rinse thoroughly with clean warm water and dry.
Never use abrasive cleanser of any kind on the hardware. Many of the opponents are coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh abrasive chemicals or scrubbing devices.
In addition to keeping the hardware clean, it is of equal importance to keep the glass clean. The best way to keep the glass free of potentially damaging water spots is to squeegee the glass after every use. A routine of using a squeegee on a daily basis is a great habit to get into. It’s a minimal investment in time, and will save you a great deal of cleaning at a later date. Using a liquid surface protector to protect your glass is a good idea.
